New Addition

We are now the very proud owners of a minivan.  Last night, Matt put all of his negotiation classes into practice and we walked off the lot with a beautiful new van.  I have been having such a difficult time lifting both kids up into the Explorer.  And I have been dreaming of push button sliding doors to help get the kids into the car safely.  I just installed the car seats and we are ready to ride.

AWESOME!!! we have a mini van and i love it. i wish both of our doors were automatic - but we bought an older version. . . anyway i was never a "i'll never drive a mini van" kind of person, anyway! :) i hope it will make your life easier.

You are the third family I know to buy this minivan...the other families love it. I hope this eases the challenge of leaving the house. Let us know how the kids like their new ride! :)

Sweet Ride!
Nothing like a minivan, it is all about the family!
Happy riding!

Congratulations, Shannon!

I just love your new car, is that a Honda Oddysey by chance? Those are SUPER cars. And the push button sliding doors will be so great for those full hands us Moms always seem to have!! Way to go, I love it! Joanne
